In recent years, numerous school districts have opted or thought about cutting arts and music from their schools. Volunteers and staff at the St Jerome Regional School in Tamaqua are proud to say that will never happen at their school. During a recent show at the school, Mrs. Mary Ann Mansell, school principal, stated her appreciation to performing arts director Paul Mulhern for volunteering two days a week with the students. She also stressed the school's appreciation to all the staff, parents and volunteers who also take part in the program.
